When Pantone introduced its new color of the year I was immediately captivated. It’s a color that may be familiar to many of us, but I honestly haven’t taken advantage of the fullness of it’s beauty. In fact, I can only remember having one client who used this color and I think it makes for a wonderful color palette.
Per Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, “Marsala enriches our mind, body and soul, exuding confidence and stability. Marsala is a subtly seductive shade, one that draws us into its embracing warmth.” And I totally agree, when I look at Marsala I get a cool feeling and can see it being used for invitations, bridesmaid dresses, groomsmen attire, linens, and so much more.
Marsala can be paired with so many other colors such as oranges, yellows, lavenders, and even reds to give it a vibrant pop. Pantone even recommends the following options for Wedding Color Palettes.
So what’s all the buzz about? Take a look and see how so many have been inspired by Marsala…
